• What is CAN?

    line
    Community Action Nepal (CAN) is a UK based charity whose aim is to help the mountain people of Nepal. Founded by Doug Scott CBE, who in 1975 made the first British ascent of Everest, CAN is supported by mountaineers and mountain-lovers from across the globe. CAN's Kathmandu office and Nepali staff make our projects happen on the ground. Funds are raised from donations, fundraising events, sales of Nepali goods, grants and Doug Scott's lecture tours.

    CAN works in partnership with mountain villages and communities to provide local health, education, income generation, cultural and mountain porter welfare facilities. CAN projects are grass roots driven - with ideas coming directly from and supported by communities. Since 1998 CAN has established more than 50 community projects bringing benefits to 250,000 people. We currently operate nine Health Posts, eight schools and three mountain porter rescue shelters.
